WHO IS IT FOR?
The Traineeship at FELFEL is designed to give young individuals a kick-start into their professional life. The Traineeship program takes 9-12 months, including at least 2 rotations in different team (a short version is doable with 6 months in only one team).
Learning, on the job training, and a lot of responsibilities are three of the core elements of the program.
We want to give young people an inspiring and honest way to start their career & welcome the following individuals to apply:
Graduates (Bachelor or Masters)
Maturanden (after finishing Matura)
Young career changers (Quereinsteiger) such as flight attendants who would like to experience something new, KV etc.
LEARNING: we learn together every day, but once a month we do a skill shaping sessions - often with a unique external expert
ON THE JOB TRAINING: a lot of trainings during the first six months, including how we work at FELFEL, food safety, food service, etc.
RESPONSIBILITIES: the best way to learn is to do, therefore we give young talents a lot of responsibilities early on
The core element, which we believe is ‘core’ to any professional career is Customer Service. Getting to know your customer is key for whatever you do in your career later on and this is where we start with your training.
FIRST ROTATION: Customer Happiness Team
CUSTOMER SERVICE: Learn all about ‘excellence’ in customer service e.g. professional support via phone and in person.
EVENT MANAGEMENT: you learn to manage a complete launch event on your own
MARKETING BASICS: together with the team you will build a ‘Moment of Joy’ campaign - and execute the campaign on our customer sites
In your first rotation you will also get to know the FELFEL business via various introduction sessions, learn what team culture at work means and improve your communication and team player skills - elements that we believe are crucial for your future career here at FELFEL or elsewhere.
SECOND & THIRD ROTATION
Depending on your personal interests and the needs of the team, you will rotate through 1-2 additional teams and get exposure to their daily tasks and work on a project during the rotation.

Skill Shaping classes
Every month, the Trainees are invited to a SKILL SHAPING CLASS to strengthen skills for the role and general knowhow of the food industry here in Switzerland. Here a few examples of past classes.
Meet the farmer
To broaden our understanding of the Swiss Bio (Organic) Culture and production landscape, we visited our own supplier who focuses entirely on a sustainable, organic production.
An important skill in today’s work environment is empathy: understanding your colleagues, your clients and being able to communicate efficiently. In a playful way we learnt more about the topic.
January 19: Photography class
Everything is visual today - and the better we can communicate with pictures and videos, the easier we make it for our audience to ‘understand’. It is also a lot of fun to make nice pictures.
